Data can be quite in danger when storage devices like a hard drive fail or suffer damages. In such cases, users have started giving utmost importance to the backup data. Keeping backup data ensures convenient and fast data recovery. Author Divya Jain View all posts

Lacking the regular backup of your data can prove to be ineffective for the data recovery process. You should always keep regularizing backup data in practice to make the data recovery from backup as effective and working as possible.

Here are three instances we are discussing today to tell you how often you should backup your data.

Types of users: Depending on different types of users, you should backup data accordingly. If you use your laptop data for little time or at work only, then the monthly backup update is fine for you. If you use the computer regularly and keep changing or modifying data on your device, weekly updates will be much appreciated.

Importance of data: There is no use frequently backing up data that is not important or urgent to you. You might be personally using a desktop for playing games or using social media, keeping photographs and so on. In contrast, you might need to regularly backup data which is important as your office files.

Change in data: When you keep modifying the data regularly, it is important that you backup data before and after changing the data. The time you modify data should be the moment you back up the changed data as well.


Backup is important but backing up regularly is crucial. Once the backup gets old, there is no use in recovering data, as the new changes in the data will not be restored. Always be regularly backing up data, weekly, monthly or every day, depending on the three scenarios.
